Dronedek gets facial recognition tech for its drone delivery mailbox
Dronedek has found a new partner to make its drone delivery mailbox offering more secure. The Indiana-based company says it is teaming up with facial recognition provider Scylla so that its smart delivery mailbox can be unlocked as easily as a cellphone.
Dronedek creates secure, temperature-controlled mailboxes capable of accepting both traditional mail and food/package deliveries through drones. These mailboxes can keep packages hot or cold; alert users to package arrivals or pickups; recharges drones and other electrical devices; and in times of need, can even serve as an alert to emergency response services.
Currently, an app controls everything from when the device is opened for delivery and retrieval to its emergency alarm features. But in select phases of upcoming pilots, Dronedek plans to use Scylla’s facial recognition services to allow customers to unlock their mailboxes more conveniently.
